Happy St Patrick’s Day

We thought we'd better acknowledge that something green is happening today.

Happy St Patrick’s Day

And because the St Patrick’s Day video below is a little lame - even though it involves guys in towels in a steam room, no less -  we’ve included a bonus video featuring the last pope and some athletic shirtless guys.  It’s also lame, but in an entirely good way.
